About Umme Kulthoom

Umm Kulthum (Arabic: أم كلثوم‎‎) (c.603-630), died childless.

There is a dispute about her father. Sunni Muslims believe she was Muhammad's biological daughter. Shi'a Muslims believe she was Muhammad's stepdaughter, daughter of Khadijah by her second marriage.

"Who were Khadijah's children by her second husband? This is another controversy that revolves round the other daughters or step-daughters of the Prophet (ص) besides Fatima (ع). These daughters, chronologically arranged, are: Zainab, Ruqayya, and Ummu Kulthoom. Some historians say that these were Khadijah's daughters by her second husband, whereas others insist they were her daughters by Muhammad (ص). The first view is held by Sayyid Safdar Husayn in his book The Early History of Islam in which he bases his conclusion on the contents of al-Sayyuti's famous work Tarikh al-Khulafa wal Muluk (history of the caliphs and kings; do not confuse it with Tabari's Tarikh; both books bear the same title, and this is not uncommon at all)." (Al-Jibouri)
